July 15 DEADLINE to Apply for CDFA FAAST Grants; $10M Available

As a result of California SB 103, an emergency drought relief measure, the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has announced that it is now accepting applications for the State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program (SWEEP).  Applicants may apply for an estimated $10 million in competitive grants that can be used for the implementation of water conservation measures that result in increased water efficiency and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.  

Applicants must access the Application Guidelines for detailed information and program requirements. To streamline and expedite the application process, CDFA is partnering with the State Water Resources Control Board, which hosts an online application using the Financial Assistance Application Submittal Tool (FAAST). All applicants must register for a FAAST account at https://faast.waterboards.ca.gov.

Applications must be submitted electronically using FAAST by Tuesday, July 15, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. PST. 

CDFA will hold application workshops and one webinar to provide information on program requirements and the FAAST application process . There is no cost to attend the workshops or webinar. Space is limited at each workshop location. Individuals planning to attend should email grants@cdfa.ca.gov with their contact information, number of seats required and workshop location. Upon confirmation of registration further details will be provided.
